"It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent."   - Madeleine Albright

 

 

On October 6th, 2018, Southgate Media Group is holding the 1st Annual Women in Podcasting Festival live at The Otherworld Theatre Venue in Chicago, IL. The opportunity to podcast is blind to gender, race, religion, status, or any of the many dividers separating our society.  Podcasting gives voice to all.  Podcasting can be a tool of empowerment for those who have felt silenced.  Our festival is not about women’s issues or feminism, it is about celebrating the unique voices, perspectives, and creativity of women who podcast. The shows featured will have various genders performing at the festival, yet the primary host of each show must identify as female. The topics of the podcasts on stage will be wide ranging and a representation of varied interests that all people have. 

We are offering the opportunity for businesses to reach fans of female lead podcasts through advertising and/or as an event sponsor.

The many benefits of sponsoring the festival: 

·   Social Responsibility– Brands that sponsor this festival are demonstrating that they support the intelligence, creativity, and right to be heard of women in our society.  Supporting the Women in Podcasting Festival delivers the message that your brand cares about women, their passions, their ideas, and their place on the cultural landscape.

·   Increase Brand Awareness – As any marketer knows, brand awareness is key to obtaining and retaining customers. Event sponsorship is a very effective way to accomplish this by showing support of the customer’s passions.

·   Lots of ways to sponsor– Through on-stage and lobby banners, programs, podcasts, blogs and more; we have many ways to sponsor at different levels that will fit most budgets.

Let us promote your show to people who love podcasts and supporting creativity!

Are you interested in this opportunity?
